In today’s world, information technologies and the products of these technologies have become a part of us as well as making our lives easier. The technology that has developed from the past to the present has also created its own titles and sub-titles in this process. When it comes to information technologies, software comes to mind first. The software controls the operation of the devices that we use frequently in today’s world and in the recent past, and their functioning in a certain order while working. The software can be thought of as a manager working as a technical integrity in the background with many mathematical and logical formulas. While using the software for the intended purpose, the user must control it in a certain visuality. In this context, the term “interface” comes into play. In its most basic form, the interface can be defined as the screen(s) that users see while using software or websites.
The interface can be defined as the screen-screens that users see while using a certain information technology. In this context, the interface has many technical sub-titles. For example, UI experience, UI design, heatmap, color scheme, and typography. In the light of these examples, the interface can be divided into two main headings as user experience and user interface design. In this article, we will focus on user interface design, sub-headings and points to be considered rather than user experience.
We have seen in the examples given that visuality and user experience based on visuality are at the forefront in user interface design. Another important point that can be given to these examples is typography. Typography can be thought of as the compatibility of the font(s) used in the application or the website, the suitability of the font sizes, etc.. Looking at a screen that is different from each other, regardless of size or thickness, on the screen that users see while using an application or website is a situation that reduces the user experience and makes it visually tiring. Therefore, the use of fonts, sizes and thicknesses used in written texts as a whole and in accordance with the content and characteristics of the application or website provides a higher quality user experience while not visually tiring the user. Not only the size and harmony, but also the location of the texts and the arrangement of the paragraphs increase the user experience in terms of visuality and comfortable reading-following.
The interface, whether software or website, is the end point that end user’s encounter. Therefore, while aiming to provide the end user with the best experience in terms of experience, it is essential to support this process with visual stimuli and pointers. Because user experience and user interface design are inseparable and support each other.
